Course Description:

 

MG 633 Human Resource Management: This course is an extensive analysis of human resource management in the modern organization. Major functional areas including strategic human resource management, employment, compensation, benefits, employee and labor relations, training and development, human resource planning, personnel policy and procedures are discussed. Prerequisite: MG 352 or equivalent approved by Program Director.

Educational Philosophy:
 

The major goal of this course is to help you understand the value in finding the right question to ask in a particular setting and knowing where to find the tools and resources to accomplish the task at hand.  The facilitator's educational philosophy centers around readings, cases, and review questions because the best way to learn the topic is through application.  Lectures and outside resources will supplement the readings to highlight important concepts, but class discussions and questions will be the main method which allows the concepts to sink in so that you will be able to apply them in a business setting.  It is key that all assignments be completed to the best of your ability before coming to class and you are prepared to discuss your answers with the class.

Class Assessment:

Discussion - weekly points assessed based on demonstrated preparation for class (reading materials and completing homework) and level of interaction and participation in class.

 

Quizzes - True/False, Multiple Choice, and Fill-in-the-blank questions from the weekly readings.

 

Article Reviews - 10 points for selection of relevant article and proper citations; 10 points for analysis and application to course; 5 points for presentation to the class

 

Team Project - content of the project as to whether it fully addresses the topic, incorporates resources (textbook and outside) and is compiled in a professional and properly cited manner.  Team Presentation graded on professional content, professional appearance, and level of effort shown.

 

Peer review points will be an average of your teammates' ratings of your contribution to the project.

 

Tests - Essay, short answer, multiple choice, and true/false questions.

Academic Honesty:
As a learning community, the University upholds the highest standards of academic integrity in all its academic activities, by faculty, staff, administrators and students. Academic integrity involves much more than respecting intellectual property rights. It lies at the heart of learning, creativity, and the core values of the University. Those who learn, teach, write, publish, present, or exhibit creative works are advised to familiarize themselves with the requirements of academic integrity and make every effort to avoid possible offenses against it, knowingly or unknowingly. Park University 2009-2010 Graduate Catalog Page 31

Plagiarism:

Plagiarism involves the appropriation of another person's ideas, interpretation, words (even a few), data, statements, illustration or creative work and their presentation as one's own. An offense against plagiarism constitutes a serious academic misconduct.  Although offenses against academic integrity can manifest themselves in various ways, the most common forms of offenses are plagiarism and cheating. Plagiarism goes beyond the copying of an entire article. It may include, but is not limited to: copying a section of an article or a chapter from a book, reproduction of an art work, illustration, cartoon, photograph and the like and passing them off as one's own. Copying from the Internet is no less serious an offense than copying from a book or printed article, even when the material is not copyrighted.

Plagiarism also includes borrowing ideas and phrases from, or paraphrasing, someone else's work, published or unpublished, without acknowledging and documenting the source. Acknowledging and documenting the source of an idea or phrase, at the point where it is utilized, is necessary even when the idea or phrase is taken from a speech or conversation with another person.

Attendance Policy:

Professors are required to maintain attendance records and report absences. Excused absences can be granted by the instructor, for medical reasons, school sponsored activities, and employment-related demands, including temporary duty. Students are responsible for any missed work. Absences for two successive weeks, without approved excuse, will be reported to the Director of the individual graduate program, or to the Executive Director for the Graduate School, for appropriate action. Students with such a record of absences, without an approved excuse, may be administratively withdrawn from the class and notified that an "F" will be recorded, unless the student initiates official withdrawal from the class(es).Park University 2009-2010 Graduate Catalog Page 35

Disability Guidelines:
Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply. Additional information concerning Park University's policies and procedures related to disability can be found on the Park University web page: http://www.park.edu/disability .
